interest this weekend, is it's lindsay lohan's big return to the silver screen, so lindsay has a small role in this. she didn't do any press for it, didn't go to the premier and didn't see it. there is a photograph of lindsay paying her $10 in west hollywood and buying a ticket and went to see the movie like the rest of us jyesterday? >> was she in jail? >> they didn't really want her small role to overshadow what sort of movie this was. they decided marketing wise to keep her away from the premier, away from the press, and it's done very well and lindsay's great in this movie. it really is going to help her career. >> i've always said she's a tremendous actress. >> that's the one thing. this girl can act. and if she can keep doing movies like this and reminding everybody of that she will have a good career again. >> we can hope for the best for her. how about "going the distance" maybe not so much. >> it didn't do well at all. everyone is surprised how little this movie brought in, maybe as small as $8 million. are the initial early numbers. >> right. >> the surprising thing about this is,

think there was so much hype leading up to np you can see lindsay lohan. that was an opening part of this thing. you saw her quickly. she said you've got to pull it together, handler, nobody will hire an alcoholic. a lot of people laughed about that. the thing people were talking about was this big rivalry between tarl swift and kanye west, was it going to play out, was it not? she had a song a lot of people said seemed was about him. >> it was to me at least my interpretation a song of forgiveness for him, kind of forgiving him. >> of course referencing when he interrupted her last year at the vmas. listen to his song, though, because a lot of people said it addressed his character flaws. this closed the show. ♪ >> so a lot of people are saying that's the end of his pop culture exile. and you should note everyone was chanting "kanye." the only standing ovation of the night. >> i'm surprised they let him close out the show, but they gave him a big spot in the show. we can't say some of those lyrics on the air he said. but basically he said i screwed up, trying to atone for that.

niro, jessica alba, don johnson and lindsay lohan dressed as a nun. i think if people are really curious about robert rodriguez and the genre of film he produces, this is definitely a draw. i don't know if it's for everybody. i do think it's a built-in audience. not surprised it comes in second. >> hch going the distance" withdrew barrymore and justin long is number five right now. what's going on there? >> i think people have seen this movie before. drew barrymore, this is her genre. the thing about drew i really like is she produces these films. she has a company called flower films and they have had $870 million in box office revenues, she's produced "charlie's angels," "he's not that into you." i think the fact she produces it makes up for the film in the back end. people like seeing these two people on camera. there could be a resurgence come monday. labor day weekend also is a slow weekend to begin with because i think everybody is at the beach because they know school is starting. >> amy palmer, more later, thank you. >>> first she was accused of crashing a white house par

a sense of what the white house is thinking? >> well, let's first of all talk about what lindsay graham says. he doesn't know what the white house is going to be do between now and november but we have some inkling to that and much to the happiness of some democrats the white house is turning its attention to the economy and trying to do something to make it better. the stimulus was supposed to do that and to a certain extent it did. the white house says independent surveys say it saved or created 3.3 million jobs, knocked a couple percentage off the unemployment rate, but people are not buying it. clearly david plouffe had to admit and robert gibbs admitted on "meet the press" some weeks earlier, the republicans stand to gain control of the house of representatives and increasingly people are talking about republicans having a shot at senate, even though they would have to run the table to do that. now the president turning to the economy, trying to bolster the chances of democrats as a side benefit to that, tomorrow he heads to milwaukee. it's a speech before the afl-cio on labor day
